hits the national debt ceiling. republicans are calling for budge cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling, but president obama came out swinging during his news conference on monday claiming he's already gone a long way toward closing the budget gap. joining us now to fact check some of his statements, stephen hayes, a senior writer for the weekly standard and a fox news contributor, douglas holtz-eakin is now president of the american action forum. just as a general rule, steven, when you heard the president speaking in that news conference, was he generally being honest with the american people about the state of our finances? >> well, i would say there were some things he said that were true, some things that he said that were, i think, misleading. importantly, he didn't put into proper context the discussion that we're having nationally about the debt ceiling and about the state of our finances more broadly. if you look at where we are, more than $16 trillion in debt, the president is right when he says that what we're talking about when we're talking about raising the debt ce

sequester, you've got the debt ceiling, and you have the continuing resolution. the sequester and debt ceiling sort of fall on top of each other towards the end of february. we used to say in the republican leadership group in the senate which i had the good fortune to serve in for about 12 years as sort of an ad hoc member, you never take a hostage you can't shoot. [laughter] the problem with the house was they took a hostage they couldn't shoot when they took the fiscal cliff. and if republican members of the congress take the debt ceiling as a hostage, it's a hostage they can't shoot. as a very practical matter, if we go over the debt ceiling, we don't exceed -- we don't increase the debt ceiling, republicans aren't going to win the debate. they'll argue that they're not increasing it because they don't want to control spending, but they're not going to win the debate, because what will happen is that the white house will pay with the cash flow of the country the debt, the interest on the debt. the debt won't default. what they might not pay and will certainly threaten not to pay are social security checks. and the moment that the american citizen figures out that the social security checks migh
